Fender Harvard Model 5F10 Model Tube Amplifier (1956), made in Fullerton, California, serial # H-00517, tweed fabric covering finish.
 
Height is 16 1/4 in. (41.3 cm.), 17 3/4 in. (45.1 cm.) width, and 8 7/8 in. (22.5 cm.) deep. This great-sounding Harvard (the Princeton's big brother) has a Tube chart code of FL, indicating assembly in Dec 1956 It has had the typical thorough cap job, including "death cap" removal and a grounded 3-prong cord added. There are no circuit changes. The speaker is the original Jensen dated the 4 week of 1956, with new power tubes and the rest of the complement NOS. The outside of the amp shows some typical dirt and wear to the tweed but nothing major, the control panel chrome some light corrosion and the leather handle looks like an old and but close repro of the original. All-in-all a great sounding fairly early example of the big-sounding 10-watt "Steve Cropper Classic" amp, one of Fender's less well known gems. And yes, we've played "Green Onions" on it…in F. Very Good + Condition.
